Six weeks after intoxicated motorist Cody Joseph Jean told Montoursville Patrolman Gary W. Bennett that he was "very proud" of being drunk, the 20-year-old Upper Fairfield Township man was arrested again by borough police for driving under the influence of intoxicants.
Jean, of 65 Mountain Brook Lane, had a blood-alcohol content level of 0.15 when the officer pulled over his Pontiac Grand Prix in the 1200 block of Loyalsock Avenue about 3 a.m. Feb. 25. He was stopped for running a red traffic light on Loyalsock Avenue, police said.
During the stop, Jean, who was driving with a suspended license, "became very belligerent" and admitted the he was drunk, according to an affidavit filed by Bennett.
"He was very proud of it, and said that he liked getting intoxicated," Bennett said of Jean, who was taken to the county's DUI center, where his blood was drawn.
Jean was driving the same car when Patrolman Kurt Hockman stopped the vehicle in the area of the 800 block of Loyalsock Avenue about 3:30 a.m. April 7, police said. The officer detected a strong odor of alcohol in the vehicle, police said.
Again Jean was taken to the county's DUI center. His blood-alcohol content level this time was 0.12, police said.
Jean was arraigned Monday before District Judge Gary A. Whiteman on two counts each of driving under the influence of intoxicants, underage drinking and driving with a suspended license.
He was released on $5,000 bail.
